Fee and Payment Information


The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum.  Tuition fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate.  Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial tuition fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed tuition fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun.  All CSU listed tuition fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees and/or the Campus.


Spring 2013

Special Circumstances- Financial Aid Recipients

If you have been awarded and you have accepted an offer of Financial Aid (excluding College Work Study) for Spring 2013, you will be given a fee deferment. Enroll in classes by following the Registration Procedures. Do not apply for the University's Installment Payment Agreement unless your aid has been cancelled. See Fee Payment Deadlines - Financial Aid Receiptant Fee Deadlines for more information.


You must register through Gator Reg (SF State's web registration system) in order to receive your Financial Aid at the beginning of the semester. The Financial Aid Office will not authorize disbursement until you are officially enrolled in at least the minimum number of units required for the types and amounts of Financial Aid you have been awarded. There will be no exceptions to this requirement.


If you are found to be ineligible for Financial Aid after you have enrolled in classes, you must pay your fees no later than November 29, 2012 before 5:00 pm (in-person and by mail) and 11:00 pm (online) . If your Financial Aid is not sufficient to pay your fees in full, you will be responsible for paying the balance by January 25, 2013. Payments received after this date may be assessed a non-refundable administrative fee of $20. If you register for classes and decide not to attend SFSU, you MUST drop all classes by the published refund deadline of January 25, 2013 through Gator Reg at MySFSU and/or in person at the Registrar's Office. (See Refund Guidelines under Title IV- Return of Federal Financial Aid Fund Due to Withdrawal).


Note: Refund application requests received from subsidized students whose fees were deducted from Financial Aid awards will be processed only after additional payment is received from the agency.
